Henry B. Fried Scholarship
For 2019, HSNY will award multiple watchmaking students with the $10,000 Henry B. Fried Scholarship.
Most watchmaking schools in the USA are free. Tuition is covered by a sponsoring brand, and usually the only school expense that the students cover are their tools. These schools are full-time two year programs, meaning paying for living expenses can be difficult. This is where the Henry B. Fried Scholarship comes in; the Horological Society of New York wants to help American watchmaking students succeed in every way. The winners of the 2019 Henry B. Fried Scholarship will be announced at the 2019 Gala & Charity Auction.
The Howard Fass award is given to individuals judged to have shown extraordinary dedication to the ideals which the Society pursues. This award is HSNY’s highest honor, and has only been given once before (shown above). At the 2019 Gala & Charity Auction, the Howard Fass award will be presented to a recipient who has dedicated their life and career to horological education, guiding hundreds of watchmaking students through school and into their professional careers.
